Look w/o first hand knowledge I don't think we'll know for shure.My opinion is yes both her and Keith got paid as eveyone else.This is only going by the old hippy standard we take care of the entire family.The more interesting thing to me is the fact that you could be in a band for years and fo whatever reason leave. So in comes new guy , hired help gunslinger and not even noticed. A few examples bass player for Bon Jovi,bass player for the Stones, bass for the WHO and for you metal freaks the bass player for Metallica.Ever notice whenn shots of the band are displayed these dudes are not in any shot. These guys are very rarely introduced and I'll bet all the change in my pocket they clearly do not get an even share, more like union scale.I remember a documentary on Mtetallica and their search for their new bass player and this dude was offerred a million flat for a world tour. Sounds good until you find out the other guys are pulling 10x that amount.Fair,well whose to say a jobs a job but maybe you can at least introduce your new band mate.
I actually used to know these guys names but it all escapes me now.
